This Saturday!

Come on out to the 10th Annual Fall Fine Arts Festival

 

Saturday Sept. 6, 2014 
from 10am – 4pm
Southbury Green
Main Street South
Rain or Shine
Free Entry

This yearly celebration of the arts is hosted by the Southbury Women's Club and generously sponsored by Shop Rite, Southbury Music Studio, and Southbury Kitchens.

Over 50 artists selling one-of-a-kind photos, paintings,sculptures, handcrafted home goods, and art to wear will be present. 

The event will feature live music from Changes Urban Instrumental and musicians associated with the Southbury Music Studio, in addition to kid’s crafts, face painting, and delicious bake goods.



Laura Brown, Owner of the Jewelry Café and jewelry artist will offer demonstrations along with Maureen Henriques, a nationally known glass bead artist and teacher from The Brookfield Craft Center who will give a demonstration on Fusing Silver.   Pure silver (.999) wire is formed into various shapes and fused with a torch to create components (circles, teardrops...) for jewelry making.  Once the shapes are created, they are “work hardened” by hammering them and creating texture.   Watch them create contemporary silver circle jewelry! 

Demos will be offered at Noon and 2 pm.

100% of the proceeds from this annual event are donated to the local community to help those in need.

2014 Featured Artists


Lynda and Lasse Baldauf – Three Bluebirds

(New FFAF Vendor)

Lasse grew up in Finland, where his family used Swedish dishcloths to clean every room in the house.  Back in those days, these wonderful cleaning cloths were plain yellow or green - not particularly attractive, but they sure did the job!  A few years ago, some scandinavian companies began printing designs on the dishcloths, making them decorative as well as sustainable and functional.  
 
There is an enormous need and desire for eco-friendly, sustainable products in the US.  So in 2013 we launched Three Bluebirds!  We source our raw materials from FSC certified forests. They are printed with water-based inks here in Connecticut.  We currently have 62 designs in our collection - each one is designed by either Lasse or our daughter's boyfriend, Ken.  In September 2014, we will have 10 new Christmas designs.

Made from two natural fibers, cellulose and cotton, these sponge-like dishcloths absorb 15 times their own weight and can last a good nine months with average use.  They can be used to clean everything from kitchen and bathroom surfaces; dishes and windows; cars and patio furniture.  They’re also great for damp dusting furniture, picture frames, chandeliers and baseboards.  They can even be used as a natural sponge in the shower!
